SIMHACHALAM

The shrine, which is dedicated to Lord Narasimha or Vishnu in the aspect of a lion, is built on the top of a bill, which is about 800 feet above the sea level. A flight of step runs all the way from the foot to the top of the temple, and a Ghat road is also under construction by which intending pilgrims can reach the temple by road also.

At the foot of the hill there are spacious choultries and sheds for the comfortable stay of the pilgrims, with all the amenities like water and lighting. Pilgrims may also have a bath in the sacred Pushkarani, which is about a furlong from the foot of the hill. The way up the hill to the temple runs through picturesque trees etc. Near the top of the northern side of the hill, in a wooded hollow surrounded by a wide circle of higher ground resembling an amphitheater, is the temple of Lord Narasimha. This is a famous and rich temple of the Northern Circars.
